I am a 3 star Mariner so upgrade is very likely. I booked outside G level cabin Ms Prisendam, Holland America, holds 780 passengers. I get some nice perks I can share!

I am non-smoker (well you can't smoke on the ship), active but not a jock-type widowed woman who is interested in cultures and cuisines (I write about them), gardening, gourmet cooking, and the world.

I am a seasoned traveler having been to 71 countries thus far including numerous times to many in SE Asia, Asia and Europe. I am respectful of other people, outgoing but not in your face and like to listen, enjoy the diversity of the world. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area-was born in Ohio but came west at age 4.

Here is the itinerary of the cruise:
0 Barcelona, Spain
1 At Sea
2 At Sea
3 Gythion, Greece
4 Cruising The Dardanelles

After reading this I bet you want to join me?!
Yankinoz likes what he reads, I think. Eighty year old male walking with stick, loves Good Time but am limited on my feet. This would be my third cruise after Panama Canal if it works out. I'm new at this but the itinerary sound right up my ally. I live in Tasmania, Australia. What is the next move?
